We got jammed!

After waiting all day for the Dems to give us a bill to vote on, they introduced a substitute and had us vote on it with no explanation and no time to read the bill.

Rather than adopt the Senate version of the replacement bill (17% surcharge and a $7.5 million cap) or push the Senate to vote on the House version, (33% surcharge and a $2 million cap) they subbed a bill with a 30.5% surcharge and a $4.75 million cap.

Here's the rub. They made us vote blind, then adjourned until next Tuesday. They are apparently trying to force the Senate's hand. Either the Senate has to approve this stinker of a bill, or do nothing and the service tax goes into effect.

How sophomoric can you get? Stay tuned for further developments.
